Straight from the specials section! | March 19, 2021 – March 25, 2021
Number theory for Competitive Programming – If you have been following up with our roundups regularly, you might have seen the concept of Number Theory is discussed several times. This is because it bears high significance in CP. Istasis Mishra, our educator and a CS Research Undergrad at IIIT Hyderabad, will teach you how to make the best use of this concept while programming tricky problems. With topics covered from beginner to advanced level, this is the place to tackle your Number Theory issues!
More problems in Dynamic Programming – Istasis Mishra is back at it again with his signature class on Dynamic Programming. Last week he discussed a few problems and concepts, and this time, he continues with it. With even exciting and challenging questions, if you want to challenge yourself with nothing but the best, then this Special Class is for you!
Backtracking – Over the last few years, Backtracking has been a trendy discussion topic among budding programmers. With not many reliable video resources available on this, Kushagra Nigam’s Special Class can be a blessing for you! With detailed discussions on Backtracking and its differences from Recursion, if you were looking for a proper resource, then you are in for a treat!
Practice problems on Arrays and Strings – To make the best progress, you need to train your basics as hard as possible. Arrays and Strings are like the building blocks of any program, and if you train them well enough, you have the foundation to deal with the very best! Chitrank Mishra will assist you in solving some of the most challenging problems concerning Arrays and Strings. Once you are done with these, nothing can stop you from going towards harder concepts.
Weekend events that made it even special!
Just like every other week, we had some exciting events lined up during the weekend as well. Firstly, we had Naina Gupta as our guest for the third episode of Weekends With Champions! The Amazon intern discussed her programming life and provided us with fascinating information that will surely inspire you. If you couldn’t watch the episode live, you can still watch the recording here.
Programming Aptitude Test For Practice
Every Saturday, we conduct a 60-minute programming aptitude test (MCQ-based) with 35 questions called Dead Heat. If you have a knack for coding but don’t know where to start, this can be the perfect option for you. Even though the test is over, you can still participate in it to solve the questions and have fun!
What is a Free Class (aka Special Class), and how can you attend one?
Free classes are called Special Classes and can be attended by anyone on the Unacademy Platform who registers and chooses Competitive Programming as their goal. When you try to check any of the classes mentioned earlier, you will be taken to the Unacademy platform and will be required to sign up using your mobile number or email address. You would be receiving an OTP on your registered credentials to enter the sign-up menu. Once you have signed up, you need to add Competitive Programming to your goal from the drop-down menu. This will ensure that learning CP remains your goal this year, and you keep getting updates about any new programming classes on the platform. To watch these free classes on the platform for the first time, always remember to use the access code CODECHEF.
